Just because I’m watching what I eat, that doesn’t mean I haven’t lost my sweet tooth. I am trying to tame it however. This is a very tart apple crisp thanks to the Granny Smith apples. If you’d like a sweeter taste, switch to Gala or another sweeter baking apple. Or add a tiny bit more sugar.
Low Calorie Recipes: Individual Apple Crisp Recipe
This is a very tart apple crisp which is perfect with a dollop of TruWhip (sold at Albertson's and Whole Foods as well as other markets in the frozen food aisle). If you won't be topping it, you may want to increase the granulated sugar - this will of course increase the calories.
- 3 medium fresh apple(s), Granny Smith, cored and sliced uniformly (about 1/8” at the thickest part) – if organic leave the skins on
- 3/4 Tbsp fresh lemon juice
- 2 Tbsp sugar, granulated
- 1/4 cup dried cranberries
- 3/4 cup Multi-grain hot cereal or old-fashioned oatmeal (uncooked)
- 1-1/2 Tbsp packed brown sugar
- 3 Tbsp butter (room temperature)
- 2 tsp ground cinnamon
- ½ tsp freshly ground nutmeg
Preheat oven 350
Wash, core, and thinly slice apples (peel if not organic). Chop for ramekins
Drizzle lemon juice and sugar over apples; mix to coat evenly; set aside.
Combine grain, brown sugar, butter, cinnamon, and nutmeg.
Toss the apple mixture to incorporate any liquid that's accumulated; divide between 8-6oz ramekins
Divide topping between ramekins - press into apples
Bake at 350 for approximately 25-30 minutes or until apples are tender.
Top with a dollop of TruWhip

If you haven’t tried TruWhip yet, you have no idea the deliciousness you’re missing out on. I found it in the freezer aisle of Albertson’s and it’s a frozen whipped topping without artificial flavors. I prefer it frozen and often eat a tablespoon as a snack from from the freezer – it satisfies my ice cream addiction as well.
